Modern Architecture places more and more emphasis on the necessity of providing large floor space, flexibility of internal lay out, versatility of use and freedom of movement. All of these are facilitated by the use of post-tensioning in the construction of concrete floor slabs, giving large clear spans, less columns and supports, and reduced floor thickness.
This method of construction has, over the past 20 years, been widely used in many countries, and has proven to be more economical than many of the traditional methods.
The basic structure provides architects, consultants and investors with an economical solution design of floors and roofs of such projects as multi-storey office buildings, car parks, hospitals, schools, commercial and administrative centers, and apartment blocks.
The design of flat slabs have evolved since the mid fifties, when the first post-
tensioned slabs where built. Experience has enabled methods and criteria to be improved with greatly simplified structural design techniques, such as the load-balancing method along with the equivalent frame, now widely used.
